As this is indeed a Cephalopod Forum, it behooves me to remind my fellow Lovecraftians to have a plate of spaghetti and/or a bowl of chili today in memory of Cthulhu's Creator -- The Gentleman from Providence himself, who would have been 115 years young today (born 20 August 1890).

Raise your glasses (non-alcoholic.... he was a teetotaler) and join me in a rousing chorus of:

IÄ! IÄ! CTHULHU FH'TAGN!

Your Eldritch Compatriot,
Tani

oddly enough, i did choose tonite as a good time to make red sauce from scratch for the first time.....

Happy Birthday HPL, you grim, sober man!

Here's also to HPL's violent allergy to seafood - without which he probably wouldn't have equated marine invertebrates with horror, and the World would be much, much poorer!

I shall have a toast and a plate of batrachian, squamous, gibbering, bulging-eyed, and pale oysters in celebration !!
He had no need to fear us. Poor lad.

Yes, Happy Birthday, Mr. Lovecraft.

If there's a heaven, I hope you're there, pleasantly buzzed and rubbing elbows with women and black folk. Rolling around with Billie Holiday, even.

Your Fellow Son of Providence,

Anyway, Cheers to the man

Oh.

I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that folks were segregated according to age in the great Hereafter.

Wankers.

Bitterly,
Clem
